Grain Sparrow You see, I thought Deep Maine and Operate Spaceship Earth Properly were *distinct* strands in this band's work. Fool that I am, man of narrow imagination.............also, I bet the body of work as he recorded it is good and I merely haven't heard my way in, but at the moment I do wish Prince had just been Colleen. Favorite track: The Fox and The Rose.
OhNoNotYou thumbnail
OhNoNotYou Unbelievably creative use of sound and voice, beautiful album!! Favorite track: Archangel Thunderbird (Amon Düül II).

About These Recordings:
1. Half Light Blues – Despite what the lyrics might imply, this is about playing songs around the fire pit in our backyard with friends… late into the night…. Originally released on Third Uncle Records as a 7” split lathe with Human Adult Band. One of our favorite bands … Check them out here: dihd.net
2. Floating from Xanthi – (featuring Dead Gum) – This was going to be part of an album that we are working on, with homemade electronics and voice …
You can see a bit of how these are made here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-3jIaz1NGfE Thanks to Panagiotis Spoulos (Dead Gum)for playing on this one! Check out his music here: deadgum.bandcamp.com
Originally released as part of the Greek fanzine LUNG
3. 92nd Street – Tape loops made from old reel to reels… cut up and collaged. Previously unreleased.
4. The Fox and The Rose – More than once after playing this at shows, we have been asked if it was about “ the little prince”, which in a weird way makes perfect sense…. Truth is, it was written after a pretty rough day that started out with the news that Jack Rose had passed and ended with hitting a fox with our car.
Previously unreleased.
5. Archangel Thunderbird (Amon Düül II) –Released as part of the “KRAUT! Covered” comp for WFMU.
6. My Daughter’s Only Son – A fever dream of a song with a super awkward first line ….. Previously unreleased.
7. When Doves Cry/I Would Die For You (Prince) – Recorded the night we found out Prince passed. Previously unreleased.
8. Velouria (Pixies) – A song we both loved when we were about Quinnisa’s age…. Somehow the Pixies have found yet another way to worm back into our lives… this time through our daughter…This whole family agrees that Kim Deal is really the only Pixie that matters.
Previously unreleased.
9. Rejected by Reno – A rejected piece of music from a short film we scored.
Previously unreleased.
10. Shine Bright Like A Star - Quinnisa was 6 at the time… a real ramble…. She insisted that I make her sound like the “robots” she heard on the radio… this later got picked up and released by WFMU on the “Have You Checked The Children?” comp
